NCTC is a great place to be. Since the classes are smaller than other universities you are able to get one on one help with your professors which benefits a lot because you are able to learn a lot more and ask questions. The library has lots of resources for students anything from books, newspapers, magazines to computers, printers scanners. Anything you need the library has got it to help the students learning experience more beneficial and fun!
Am enjoying being here
The campus is splendid. There are outside benches to study on and get some sunshine or fresh air. The teachers and even the students are all friendly. It is a very warm and welcomeing place to be.
Bang for the buck
Everything is priced at an affordable rate. Classes are usually one thousand dollars or under depending how many you decide to take. Very good price range.
Tips for prospective students
There are many study groups for the hardest classes like Anatomy and Physiology and College Algebra it is a good idea to get involved with those because they really benefit. Students can also get involved with the Student Success center which helps students reach their highest goals while having fun at the same time.
Great for these types of students
NCTC is great for any type of student. You can get all your basic classes done at an affordable cost in just two years. It is also a good place for students to get their associates degree before moving on to get a bachelors degree. No matter what you are interested in NCTC has something for everyone.

Great atmosphere at NCTC Gainesville campus, dorm life is fun, the professors are caring and treat you like a person and not a number, the cafeteria and office staff are very helpful.
Tips for prospective students
Have all of your enrollment stuff ready when you come, transcript, dual credit scores, scholarship awards, payment plan ready, living situations figured out, and make your hair pretty on the day you come to enroll because they will take your picture for the student ID card. Research all your opportunities first but NCTC has so many opportunities here.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
You can decorate pumpkins on Halloween or make gingerbread houses. The people in the dorm have movie nights and the theater club puts on amazing plays.
Great for these types of students
For those who want to attend college but do not know what they want to do. you will be exposed to those who are in the nursing program, agronomy, cosmetology, equine, band, choir, history, and i believe there are more, and there are many fun classes to take.
Campus Safety
There are on campus police officers on the Gainesville campus and the security truck is always cruising around and they don't harass you or anything they are genuinely friendly and not out to get you

this school has been very helpful - and relatively inexpensive- in guiding me in my schooling. i started taking dual credit classes as a high school student and have taken part of the rn program and several other core classes. highly recommended for hs students or those needing to finish basics.
Tips for prospective students
register and verify enrollment and receipt of payment before the first day of class. if you pay at a time separate from the date of registration, you may be backed out of classes without knowing it.
Academic Rigor
nursing classes were top notch as far as being challenging. however, being a fairly decent student, many of my other classes have been middle of the road in challenge.
Food and Dining
gainesville cafeteria has the best breakfast.
Bang for the buck
for the money, it's the best place to get started.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
love the amount of blood drives they do on campus.
Great for these types of students
dual credit, college freshmen, nursing - lvn or rn prospects as well as bridge (lvn-rn) prospects.
Campus Safety
never felt uneasy at any campus.

The teacher's care about their student's and always tell you how they can help you out of class.
Am enjoying being here
There are many fun event's and a pool table at the Gainesville Campus. The Corinth campus feels like a high school, but the Gainesville campus allows you to walk outside and feel the weather.
Bang for the buck
It is well worth it to get your core classes out of the way, and It has a great nursing program.
Tips for prospective students
The campus book store, buys books back and now allows people to rent out books for the semester, which is recommended to save money. If you commute, stack your classes together to allow you to make fewer trips or avoid long waiting times, but allow breaks. If you play an INSTRUMENT look into the music program. The professors will be happy to give you scholarship money.
Great for these types of students
Great if you don't know what you want to do yet. Aim for the associates degree to get core classes out of the way. Also, the nursing program and hairstyling is a big part in campus. The Music Program is looking to grow, so If you play an INSTRUMENT, please look into into the music program. The professors will be happy to give you scholarship money.

Did learn a lot
The relationship with your professor was awesome. I really enjoyed the class sizes and interactions with other students.
Did enjoy being here
I loved NCTC, I attended the Corinth campus. The classes were small and the campus was in one building. I had been out of school for about 9 years and the experience was pleasant.
Bang for the buck
The cost is minimal compared to a 4 year university. I feel that I definitely got my money's worth.
Tips for prospective students
Communication with your professor is key to help you reach your goals. Use all of the available resources the school has to offer.
Great for these types of students
This school is good for all types of students. The classes were evenly dispersed with all ages of students.
